Keep in mind @baumbodies is talking about a 2 lb cut… not 20. Even with a 2 hour weigh in, this shouldn’t affect performance as long as you’re fairly smart about it. Might even help, lots of anecdotal stuff says that a small cut can have a super-compensation effect that will cause your body to retain extra water when rehydrating, giving a nice bloat.
I’m normally in the camp of being conservative with cuts (mainly from seeing my own shit performance when trying to cut too much) but 2 lbs is such a small amount, it would be kind of silly to talk yourself out of not doing it if you’re already leaning in that direction.
My general rule, 5 and 10% of your bodyweight should be the absolute upper limits of a cut for 2 and 24 hour weigh ins, respectively. The closer you are to that limit, the more it should be reserved for a more meaningful competition. 2 lbs at 183 lbs BW is like 1.1%. If you were talking about cutting closer to 9 lbs (5%), you better be shooting for a really competitive performance and factoring some amount of strength loss, along with planning to do everything in the cut correctly.
All that said, try not to be married to a single weight class, especially if you’re struggling to keep your weight down. As someone who spent too much time trying to stay in the 220s, I can tell you moving up to 242 has been much, much more fun.
